fue strike airport possible

Possible strike at FUE Airport
#1
According to Onda Fuerteventura, there's a possibility of strike at the airport. Watch this space Confused

Translated:

The workers' assembly of Groundforce, with the signature of more than 70% of the workforce, has agreed to convene strike days for the month of February, which will take place for legal reasons at the end of January, as a consequence of the high precariousness in the employment and working conditions, which are based on:

.- Pass from temporary to fixed in application of what is stated in Article 97 of the Company Agreement, which must be a minimum of 70% of the workforce, (BOE 21-02-2018, page 20259), which would be 12 ramp workers and 11 billing, 23 in total.

.- The company, on a regular basis, excludes workers from the labour exchange due to ILT leave. The job board is a concept of dubious legality, which in any case, the worker at the end of his contract, should automatically go to that bag, without having to register, if he has obtained the favourable evaluation. The practice of the exclusion of the stock exchange by withdrawal by ILT, is not covered by a legal norm, not being included in article 43 of the IV CC of Groundforce that regulates said employment exchange.

.-Lack of personnel for operations in any department, in any of the shift and days of the week, performing regular jobs with less staff than necessary and stipulated.

.-Irregularities in the publication of fixed schedules, not respecting the one that was reached at the time and the shift cadence. Equal and rotating shifts are not respected, and the additional shift that must be negotiated seasonally, the company has imposed it unilaterally and without prior notice.

.- With fixed part-time, the company schedules more hours than they should, pretending to pay with days off the excesses of schedules, the days chosen by the company. This being an illegal practice, since part-time workers can not exceed their legal working day in contract.

.-The eventual are seen with frequent extensions of schedules, as a result of the breach of his pass to fixed, with a minimum of 70% of the template, as specified in Article 97 of the CC of Groundforce.

The workers do not decide to strike for pleasure, that our scarce salaries, we will have to subtract the discounts for the strike days, but everything has a limit, and our dignity more. The closure of the leadership of the Scale of Fuerteventura to negotiate and apply the agreement is the maximum responsible for the strike. AENA is also responsible:

First, due to its inaction in the monitoring of the application of the postulates of the public tenders that it carries out to grant the exploitation of the handling every 7 years, and the excessive handling that it grants.

Second, the responsibility of AENA for its refusal to regulate air traffic, distributing flights equally between the 7 days of the week and the operating hours of the airport, which causes days and hours peaks and valleys, in the interest of the tours operators, and against the interests of workers, and of aviation security.

The workers urge Groundforce and Aena to negotiate this situation and redirect it as soon as possible, improving the working conditions of the workers, otherwise, only Groundforce and AENA will be responsible for the strike, and its repercussion on the air transport of the island.

Flying at the end of January. With Ryanair.

I suspect I may have made some poor choices this time around.

I can't stop laughing at this  Big Grin 
Hope no forum members get inconvenienced by the action but I hope the workers get better conditions as well.

A few extra days on the island is always appreciated Ron. Just check your travel insurance policy to find out how they feel about cancellation due to strike action.

Unfortunately, this time we'll be heading back home! A few more days here wouldn't be the end of the world— usually we wouldn't care at all, but this time we have important (and impossible to reschedule) appointments which we have to return for, otherwise we wouldn't be going at all at this time of year. We really do need to get back close to our original date, in this instance.

Looking forward to coming back already, though...

Good luck to everyone else potentially affected by this and any other action being considered currently!

If the appointments are impossible to reschedule, have you considered to take a ferry to Las Palmas and fly back to the UK from Gran Canaria? Or Lanzarote - whatever suits you better.

We fortunately booked to return quite a bit in advance of the dates we need to be home, so if we're lucky we'll still get back in good time, but thanks for the reminder that this is an option for if we start getting pushed for time!
